Barrett Center at Ladera

A short drive from its sister campus on Lambert Road, Pacifica’s Ladera Lane Campus is home to a conference center, classrooms, administrative offices, and branches of both the Graduate Research Library and Pacifica Bookstore. The Opus Archives and Research Center’s rare collections are also housed on this campus. Residential buildings offer lodging for students when classes are in session, and healthful meals are shared in the large communal dining hall. Spacious lawns present spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, Santa Barbara Channel Islands, and surrounding Santa Ynez Mountains. Beautiful gardens and wooded pathways afford spaces for quiet contemplation, and a network of hiking trails lead off into the wilderness.

Both of Pacifica’s campuses are located in the coastal California foothills of the Santa Ynez Mountains, approximately 90 miles north of Los Angeles, and eight miles south of Santa Barbara. These two quiet and beautifully landscaped campuses offer ideal settings for contemplation and study. In forming the setting for its campuses, Pacifica has taken special care of the land. The plantings and structures have been designed to blend in with and give back to the environment. The gardens and “people paths” are arranged in such a way as to invite the birds, insects, and other animals of the area to make their homes in these places. Existing orchards have been converted to organic production. By growing fresh fruits, herbs, and vegetables on campus, Pacifica moves toward its goal of environmental sustainability.
